Becky’s Phone #2

I stayed at Larry’s house last night during the “end of the earth” snow storm.  (Larry a.k.a. my dad, my friend Jeremy says that I’m the only person he’s ever met that refers to her dad by his first & last name)

He brought something out to show me…. you’ll never guess what he found.

Yep… another phone.

So since we have a lot of Becky’s “Stuff” to explore yet, I have decided to dedicate an entire category to Becky!  She would love that! For now I am just going to call it “Becky’s Stuff” however I would love love love to find the perfect name for this collection of stories during our discovery period.

Please leave ideas in my comments.

I know one of you beautiful people can help me come up with the perfect title.

So here we go with part #2.

In no particular order…

ImageI suppose we are just chillaxin’ on a nice sunny spring day… lol probably windy too, judging by my lovely hair. (If I say it’s windy then maybe you won’t think that I just didn’t comb it on this nice relaxing day… hehe did it work?)

Image

It took Larry & me a while to figure out what was going on here.  Did she fall down?  Did one of the dogs fun her over?  “Oh yea, I was tracing her with the sidewalk chalk” he says.

Image

CHEEZE… the sloberier the better.  I think that’s a word.

Image

Nap time at the Turner house.

Image

I remember this face!  “Emmy, you want to see my monster face?”

Image

Yep, that’s a lawn chair, in a pool, with a floating duck, & a cold drink.

Image

Image

Dad says they were out checking mineral in this one.  He would like the top one of them walking together in a frame.  I told him I could probably take care of that.  Pretty soon Chancie will  be able to autograph it.  She can totally say her entire ABC’s!!!

Image

Image

I have no comment.

Image

Looks like these two need to be a little more careful.

Image

I stopped by after church.  Looks like miss Chancie may have just rolled out of bed.  But happy.

Image

She’s being very well protected.

Image

What a couple of turkeys.  Chancie & Kooouuudy (most of us know this stud muffin as Kody, but Chancie used to add a few extra twangs in there.)

Image

Out for an afternoon ride on Little Jack.  He’s probably hoping this is all that’s planned for him this day, “please don’t put me to work please don’t put me to work, please please pleeeeeeeeeease.”

Image

I hope she has her tongue in her mouth.  She could catch a surprise.

Image

If you don’t clean out your ears, potatoes will grow in there.  What do you think grows if you don’t clean out your nose….. looks like carrots.

Image

“Well goooolly”

Image

She looks awful sneaky, but I think even grandpa could catch her in those shoes.

Image

“How!  My name is Chancie Little Foot & Lacey Big Foot.  We’re not sure which tribe we belong to but it’s probably a darn good one.”

Image

I would bet any amount of money that they are watching Sponge Bob.  So how did mom get the Cabbage Patch doll to look at the camera but not Chancie.

Image

Trick Or Treat.  Beatle Juice Beatle Juice Beatle Juice.

Image

Andaleeee Andaleeee Ariba Ariba…..

Image

Who’s there?!  Who’s there?!

Image

Lounging around.

Image

ROAR!!! “No No No I’m a nice lion.”

Image

“Let’s blow this joint!  If only my darn car would start. “

Image

So…… do you only get to use this at Christmas time?

Image

BFF’s

Image

Yep.

Image

He is still a momma’s boy.

Image

A bean bag, in the kitchen.  Must have been movie night with mom.

Image

She must have been proud.  I now have these!  Jeremy was nowhere near as excited as I was to be the new owner of these awesome measuring spoons.  What can I say, easily pleased.

Image

Mom!  There’s some kind of creature on your lap….. oh wait, that’s just Big Corb

Image

“You will let me kiss you, especially if I’m holding you by your neck”

Image

“Seriously, how do you watch TV?  Well if it’s not on the lap of a giant giraffe with your sippy & high heels on, it’s the wrong way”

Image

Kisses for grandma!

Image

Cousin Jack….. riding Little Jack.  They seem to get along very well.

Image

Hollywood!

Image

The kitchen must have been extra ordinarily sunny.

Image

“Yo, what’s up?”

Image

Ha, Jeremy hates “posing” for pictures.  But watch him try to argue with Becky.

Image

This was Chancie’s birthday party.  They all had matching Mickey Mouse footie pajamas.  Only Lacey is gifted enough to find Mickey Mouse footie pajamas to fit her 6’4″ monster of a husband.

Image

They look like they’re having a ton of fun.

Image

“Josh could you come itch my nose, I’m suck here.”

Image

The next Eminem.

Image

They took a selfie on mom’s phone.  Surprise!

Discoveries on Mom’s phone

Most of you reading this are close enough to me & my family to know that my mom passed away very suddenly exactly a month ago (give or take a few days).

Those of you that knew mom well know that she liked to collect……. ‘Stuff’.  Nothing specific, just ‘stuff’, as much ‘stuff’ as she could get her hands on.  If you didn’t know her very well you will have a hard time trying to imagine her gift of ‘stuff’ collecting.  But I think you will enjoy this post anyway.

As you can imagine this is at times very frustrating for us.  There is so much ‘stuff’ to go through!  There’s lot of cursing, lots of laughs & giggles, lots of questions we wish we could ask her (First of all what were you planning to do with this, & did you really need three of them?)

We have recovered four, yes I said 4, cell phones.  We have sold 2 of them & still have 2 left.  (p.s. if you need a new cell phone let me know.  If we don’t have one you like, we will put you on the waiting list for future discoveries)

The most exciting part of finding all these phones is the pictures.  Each one is like a photo album of the time period she had that phone.

I recently passed one on to my friend Virginia.  Before she took it I transferred mom’s photo album over to my phone.

Caution….. this is going to cause a lot of laughing & probably a few tears.

So here’s the recipe for this post:

Chancie Rahe Turner

Corbin Jay Turner

You will see these two turkeys in this collection the most.  She seemed to like them very much.

Mr. & Mrs. Josh & Lacey Turner
a.k.a. Chancie & Corbin’s mom & dad

This dress makes me want to go…… Eyiyiyiyiyiyiyi Ariiiiba (I think that is spelled correctly.)

Mr. & Mrs. Jeremy & Emily Rippe
a.k.a. Chancie & Corbin’s aunt & uncle

Mrs. Turner & I also have a brother, Taylor.  He lives in Pratt, KS.  If he were closer I’m sure you would see more of him in this collection.  But for now he will have to be here in spirit. 🙂

Family photos of the Turner’s. What a stud muffin (I’m talking about baby Corbin of course)

Did she win? I have no idea. But there is no way to really lose when you’re rockin’ a purple cowboy hat!

And the final score is:
Corbin: 0
Spaghetti Dinner: 1

Yep that’s a toilet. Only Becky would have a picture of a random toilet on her phone. I have no explanation for this….. but do you really need one. It looks nice. I would take a seat.

Sorry, I can’t figure out how to rotate this picture.

This was obviously a wild day! Only a grandma & granddaughter could make a night out of colored water & foam rollers.

The hair curler project must have been VERY exciting for the Corb.

Do you suppose he tried to take the gun away from her?
IMG_20130811_120034
Yep, that’s the same girl that was wielding the gun a minute ago.

Big Corb’s first haircut. I believe mom was responsible for first haircuts for majority of the Washington, KS children.

I’m going to venture out & say that he can thank Chancie Rahe for this moment in history.
This picture was taken at my Jeremy & I's house. We weren't there.  I received via text mid afternoon with a message "nice couch, very comfy, do you have any snacks?"

This one has a paparazzi feel to it. I’m picturing her sneaking around the corner & giggling.

These are two of mom’s favorites. It’s hard to tell whether she’s taking a picture of Corbin or Annabelle (the furry one)

“Oh Grandma”
This is Val's surprise birthday party.  She was so surprised she cried.  Four good looking women.

I have this at my house now.  I tried to make a bet with my friend Jeremy about what color the blooms would be.  I guessed hot pink....WINNER!

Yet another fine example of Becky’s ‘stuff’ This would be one of at least four Christmas trees we have found in various places.
“Bampa!!!”
Hmmmm…….
What is going on here Dana? Carnival?
Does this count as ‘sexting’ Lol she took a picture of Lacey’s ass?
Spike a.k.a Fuzz Muffin.

I am very excited to see what else we find.

I hope you enjoyed this one.  Please share with anyone you think would get a giggle or a memory from it.

Peace out,

Em
